Description. Universities are graduating increasing numbers of Masters and PhD students each year, while positions within academia remain limited. How can you be sure that a future employer or search committee doesn’t miss the unique skills you will bring as a graduate student to your future position? This workshop will discuss some ways to make your CV and application materials catch the attention of search committees by highlighting candidates’ unique characteristics and including the details that make a difference.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own cv and application materials to workshop, though this is not required.
Learning Objectives. After attending the session, participants will:
· Identify areas for improvement for their cv and application materials
· Consider how to best format and design their cv and application materials
· Apply concepts learned at the session to their cv and application materials
Presenter. Dr. Beth Boehm, Dean of the School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies and English faculty
